Follows a list of some notable slavers operating 1789-1791 from London, Bristol and Liverpool. The list is drawn from:
An Account of the Number of Vessels, with the Amount of their Tonnage, their Names, the Port to which they belong, and the Names of the respective Owners of each, that have cleared out from the Ports of London, Bristol and Liverpool, to the Coast of Africa, for the Purpose of purchasing slaves, in the Three Years preceding the 5th of January 1792.
From: House of Commons Sessional Papers of the Eighteenth Century, Vol. 82, pp. 329-37.
